The tea light holder for soft candle light with a maritime touch
Kaasa is originally a historic seaside navigation mark (buoyage) that was used along the coast of the Gulf of Bothnia. They were made of stone and wood and resembled piles of wood of not yet illuminated campfires. Some Kaasas were marks for seamen navigating boats; others marked good fishing grounds. The designer Ilkka Suppanen is a yachtsman and was inspired by the coloured light reflection at sea.
The combination and quality of materials create cosiness
The outside of the Kaasa lantern is made of hand blown glass that is available in the classic Iittala colours. This way, Kaasa’s colours perfectly match other products by the Finnish manufacturer. For the inner material, the designer chose stainless steel as it is robust, but nevertheless has a very elegant look thanks to its polished surface. Due to the removable stainless steel insert that is designed for standard tea lights, Kaasa is very easy to clean.
The material mix of coloured glass and polished stainless steel lets the warm candle light on the inside of Kaasa to reflect harmoniously. Regardless of the time of year, the Kaasa tea light holders spread a warm candle light to create a cosy ambience in every room.
